Sales Associate in Hamilton, ON
on 23 May 2022
fun workplace
I really enjoyed working there. Staff was very friendly and always willing to help. As long as you did your work they were happy. I'd recommend working here. It wasn't stressful at all.
Part-time Sales Associate in Newmarket, ON

Taskful workplace. Lots of different tasks to do. Shifts seemingly take forever
Terrible recognition for anything significant you do. It’s funny how well-rounded you can be at this job yet never get a raise or even a promotion but someone can just walk through the door and make just as much money as you. The GM often puts things off and never really gives credit for associates making their store one of the better ones in the region
Customer Service Representative in Toronto, ON
on 19 May 2022
Unrealistic Expectations
They expect you to be extremely fast and efficient. Not allowed to make mistakes. Always on call. Expected to be available 7 days a week and open to close. You are cleaning up after people all day. They force you to get customers to sign up for their VIP rewards program. The pay sucks. The job is only good for students. Stores always short staffed and the workload everyday is not manageable. It’s very exhausting mentally and physically. Not worth it! No work life balance.
Key Holder / Sales Associate in Vancouver, BC
on 17 May 2022
Low pay rude upper management, no moving up in the company. Treated like criminals when stock comes in. Goes thru staff. No room to move up in the company
Key Holder in Barrie, ON

Good Place to work
Overall the store was a good place to work. My location was relatively slow so you got to know your coworkers very well and experience a very relaxed environment. Only downside was that the management changed frequently, and that they do not pay amazingly (but that is for all minimum wage jobs)

Asked us about who we are as people, nothing about our pevious work experience or current schooling.

Shared on 27 June 2019

Informal. Why do you want to work here-type questions.

Shared on 20 June 2019

The interview process was an off topic conversation flowing from food to hiking to personal hobbies, the Atkins diet that the interviewer just started and baking. It wasn't that professional and I wish I could answer this better.
